I think this is a new one from Gerber. The Artifact features an exchangeable/removable #11 hobby blade, cross driver, small and medium flat drivers, wire stripper, pry bar/paint can opener and lanyard/keychain attachment hole… All in a package just about the size of a Bic lighter. The hobby blade makes this an interesting key chain addition for artists and other folks that need precision cutting. The bottle opener makes it good for drunks.

Think Geek has then for $10. Check it out.

The Leatherman Wave

Read More

One of the things about gadget shopping over the internet is that understanding the size and proportion of a gadget can be difficult. I’ve always felt that video helps alleviate that problem by giving you a sense of the physical size and function of an object in something more than a two dimensional image. That in mind, welcome to our first video review.

The Leatherman Wave is my favorite full-sized multi-tool on the market. In my opinion, it’s too heavy for pocket carry – I keep mine in a bag along with a set of Leatherman bit drivers. Those drivers along with the handy inboard tools make for one indispensable little package.

Enjoy the review.
